. what's the latest information? >> jake, it's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun and it will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainly what transpired. our current assessment, is that fact what began as was a spontaneous not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this video that was disseminated. we believe that folks in benghazi, a small number of people came to the consulate to replicate this sort of challenge that was posed in cairo and then as that unfolded, it seems as hijacked, let's us say, by some individual clusters of extremists that came with heavier weapons, weapons as you know, in the wake of the revolution in libya are quite common and accessible. then it evolved from there. we'll get to see exactly what the investigation finally confirms. but that's the best information that we have at present. >> why was there such a security breakdown in benghazi? >> first of all, we had substantial presence with our -- >> not substantial enough -

's an fbi investigation that's ongoing and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. but putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. they came with heavy weapons, which unfortunately, are readily available in postrevolutionary libya. and it escalated into a much more violent episode. obviously, that's our best judgment now. we'll await the results of the investigation, and the president has been very clear we'll work with the libyan authorities to bring those responsible to justice. >> was there a failure here that this administration is responsible for, whether it's an intelligence failure, a failure to see this coming, or
